As a key part of the Jubilee celebrations, Lady Clare, Countess of Euston and H.M. Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk, is leading a county-wide celebration called the 'Festival of Suffolk'. This will bring generations and diverse communities together, connecting networks and organisations for the better. The Festival will be inclusive and welcoming to all.
"The Festival of Suffolk will bring together all people and communities in joyful celebration, and create a powerful legacy to increase the visibility of our county and improve local lives for many years to come. Together, we will shine a spotlight on Suffolk, opening up opportunities, connections and improvements for everybody.” Lady Clare.
Bishop Martin said: “Our churches across Suffolk bring people together for healing and hope, and will be a key dimension of the Festival of Suffolk. The national celebrations will take place over the four-day Bank Holiday weekend which ends on Pentecost Sunday. Events of the Festival of Suffolk will take place between May and September, offering opportunities to highlight the work of our churches in our communities, as we seek to be ‘Flourishing Congregations, Making a Difference’. I warmly commend the Festival of Suffolk to you and would encourage everyone to get involved in whatever ways you can.”
